Lovely spider. Are these related to Phoneutria at all? I must admit Phoneutria make me a little nervous but this little thing looks great biggrin.gif

Hi,

i definitely doubt you have Cupiennius getazi there.

Looks like being C. salei...

Greetings,

Stefan

She was bought as C.getazi. Are there any clear identifying features between the mentioned 2 species?

Thanks

Barth F.G, and Cordes D. (1998), Cupiennus remedius New Species (Araneae, Ctenidae), and a key for the genus. The Journal of Arachnology 26 :133-141.

There is a key in the above paper, which can be downloaded here

Hi,

the posted link is good, but the paper maybe hard to understand if you lack basic experience with the actual species.

Cupiennius shows quite distinctive markings in the three bigger species that are commonly around in the European pet trade (C. coccineus, C. getazi, C. salei).
Coloration is a neglectable feature, though.

Take a look at the ventral side of the abdomen and you should find a black stripe, indicating C. salei.

This is C. getazi:

You may further want to have a look into this:

DEARGE "Arachne" issue 2003-6-08

While written in german language itīs containing an extremely good overview about Cupiennius and is showing colour pictures of several more different species and coloration forms.

Greetings,

Stefan
